NFSC First for me

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Tonight I made NFSC. And the thing is, I have NEVER made cookies from a recipe. When I was old enough to be in the kitchen with my mom, she never baked a dessert from scratch that I can remember. Sugar cookies are my absolute favorite. I am amazed at this cookie. It tastes great but it is certainly nothing like what I used to get in the refrigerated cookie shelves. All I can say is wow! So I went on Amazon and ordered a couple of cookie books. I am so glad I came over to the cookie forum!!!!

Thank you for posting this as I am making these this weekend for the first time and am soooo nervous about the taste.

Now I can't wait!

Just curious. Which books did you buy?

Creative Cookies by Toba Garrett and Cookie Craft by Valerie Peterson are two of my favorites. Oh, and anything by Autumn Carpenter.

I have been hooked on making cookies every since I tried NFSC! It is by far the best recipe I have ever come across!

Just curious, what is the NFSC recipe? I plan on making cross sugar cookies for my daughter's communion and I'm looking for a good one. This one seems to be talked about a lot but I'm not sure what it is. icon_smile.gif

what do you use for flavoring in your nfsc?
karaskonfections - No Fail Sugar cookie. The recipe is in the recipe section.

Honey-you crack me up! icon_biggrin.gif

The great thing about NFSC is that you can flavor it to your preference. I like to put a little cinnamon in mine-kind of like a snickerdoodle flavor.

Do you all have a very favorite frosting to go with your NFSC? icon_wink.gif

I use the Antonia74 icing that's in the recipes section with my NFSC. My friends have dubbed them 'crack cookies', as they are addictive as heck and ruin every diet they come into contact with. Honestly, I have people tell me NOT to make them for parties now, just so they don't ruin their diets! LOL

Once you go NFSC, you never go back. icon_smile.gif They're the best to work with and the best tasting sugar cookie I've ever made or eaten. icon_smile.gif

DoniB- How do you flavor you "crack cookies" (I love that BTW) I've used it and was not too thrilled.

Thank you Toleshed! I figured out what the NFSC meant after I submitted my post. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for all of those links Honeydukes!! I will definitely check them out. Have you ever frozen your cookies decorated with the Antonia74 royal icing? If so, how did you wrap them?

I bough the Flour Pots book and Cookie Crafts. I really like Cookie Crafts as it has instructions and a lot of ideas. Flour Pots seems to only have idea, which is also fine. As someone starting out, I want some detail and there is more detail than on the thread of how to bake and decorate cookies. I think those are two good selections as one is icing and the other is all fondant.

I've never tried Antoni74 RI. I use Toba's glace' and RI. Freezing isn't a problem. Use an airtight container, separate the cookies with wax paper. Defrost with the lid on.

I just made a small batch of these sugar cookies that I need for Saturday. Can I just keep them in a tupperware container in the pantry for now or should I freeze them? I will probably start decorating them on Wednesday. After they are decorated, how long can they be bagged before they need to be frozen? Sorry for all of the questions but I just want to make sure that these are right. icon_smile.gif
